Customer Reviews

The recipes are easy to make, and taste great.

The only downfall is most of the recipes come in single servings...so you have to double/triple a recipe if you want to make it for a meal.
H. Connors
I highly recommend this book for all Weight Watchers members.

I had the first book and, although I don't make many of the recipes, thought it was worth buying book 2. Most of the people who give her books bad reviews complain about the processed foods and lack of nutrition. She never claims that it is a nutrition book, she clearly states that she is just making the best food she can for the fewest calories. If you want to add nutrition, add a side of baby spinach with a splash of apple cider vinegar, like a side salad, with only 10 cals, or something along those lines, and you're fine. Take this book for what it is, an idea book, with a few "recipes". Change the fat free cheese for regular, just use half as much, use light milk instead of soy (it only a few calories differece, anyway) Just figure out what is worth spending the few extra calories on, and modify, for pete's sake. Use common sense if you don't want to use all the "fake" stuff.

There are a few great recipes that my whole family loves. There is a "hot pocket" style sandwich using low carb wraps and of course, laughing cow cheese, and its warmed in a pan with PAM. I've used this style with lean hamburger (my substitution)and pickles; pizza sauce with the turkey pepperoni she reccommends; and eggs with spinach, with a sprinkle of real cheese. This may not be the healthiest lunch around, but its a heck of a lot better than fast food, or frozen kids entrees, and just as quick to make, and, even with my "non- fake" substitions, around 200 calories. I make a lot of the cupcakes as-is from the book, and my kids love those, too. There is a "mousse" with FF cool whip and peanut butter that has enough PB to satisfy my craving for it, with less than half the fat and calories.

So, I find this to be like many of the other cookbooks I own.

Before I purchased this book, I was so excited from all the reviews, only come to find out that 90% of the recipes in the book call for some sugar substitute of some kind, which gives me headaches. So if you are thinking of buying this book but don't enjoy artificial sweeteners, DON'T BUY IT. But, if you don't mind them, go for it.

I must admit that I did not like her first book and I was not going to buy her second one. But, low and behold I receive this book-as a gift- yesterday in the mail (one day early) and I opened it up and the recipes didn't look that bad. So, I decide try some recipe last night and they were pretty good. The jelly filled cupcakes so far are my favorite. She still uses alot of processed foods, which is why I never really cared for her recipes. But, I do like this book and its worth taking a look at.

Updated:

I have tried a few more recipes and just wanted to voice my opinion on them

1. Philly cheesesteak lettuce cups- I was surprised, this recipe is very good.
2. Scoopable chinese chicken salad- I like this one alot.
3. Holy moly guacamole- good!
4. H-O-T hot boneless buffalo wings- I only tried this once and that's all it took!
5. Cheesed up pepperoni pizza scramble- didn't like this either. I think it was the egg substitute.
6. Gooey cinnamon rolls w/ cream cheese icing- very good but it was small portion.
7. Sweet cinnamon fritter fries- didn't like this either.
8. Jelly filled cupcakes- this still is one of favortives.
9. Strawberry shortycakes-good, this one is a bed time snack!

As a life-time Weight Watchers member, I've known all the basics, and tried time and time again to get back on track. I had my staple go-to foods, but was bored and needed something different to keep me on my toes and add some variety. Without that, the drive-thrus and restuarnats were such easy mind-less alternatives. I struggled, until I picked up the 1st HG book and instantly felt like I had something new and exciting to get me refocused and make losing those extra pounds (courtesy of the drive thrus) easier. Most recipes are inspired by restaurant favorites, with a fraction of the calories and fat. Being single, they are perfect as most are for 1 or 2 servings (a plus since making some recipes tends to get expensive when making for only 1, and leftovers from 4-6 servings often go to waste). Plus most are so quick and easy to make they fit perfectly into my on-the-go lifestyle. Since I enjoyed the 1st book so much, I pre-ordered the 2nd and have already tried 3-4 recipes in the 2 days I've had it. Been satisfied with them all, and anxious to try more! I highly recommend HG's books to anyone looking to make quick and easy meals and stay within your "weight watchers" budget. I would also recommend to anyone who is tired of the same-old foods, and looking for something new to add back some variety and make weight loss fun! The books, coupled with the website and daily emails are a great way to keep focused, enjoy restaurant-inspired meals, get new ideas, and stay on track!

I'm not a big fan of the Hungry girl recipes but there are a few I do like. The cheese sticks and peanut butter cups are really great! The main problem I see with this book is that it doesn't offer low-calorie HEALTHY recipes with NATURAL ingredients. Instead, most of the ingredients are artificial and more importantly, filled with TRANS FAT! I'd rather eat high calorie foods filled with good fats and gain a few then eat lower calorie trans fat filled food and get heart disease.
